The Top 12 Best Liquid Blushes

The Top 12 Best Liquid Blushes

Few products can help you achieve that elusive rosy glow quite like a liquid blush. These dewy formulas blend like a dream, hydrate the skin, and have more lasting power than their powder and cream counterparts. The new-found popularity of liquid blushes is credited to a move towards a more natural complexion and the formula’s ability to achieve the viral TikTok trends.


Liquid blushes offer buildable coverage, so your mood can dictate the intensity of your finish, and application is easy; you can use fingertips, a makeup sponge, or a brush. The highly pigmented formulas blend seamlessly over liquid and powder foundations, so you never have to fear a cakey finish again. These must-have formulas also work their magic on your lips and eyes, making liquid blushes one of the most versatile products in your makeup bag!


For an everyday natural flush, apply liquid blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend the formula outwards. If you are ready to give the TikTok trends a go, try

blush draping. Create this look by applying liquid blush to the top of your cheekbones, moving towards your temples. A slightly easier trend to experiment with is sunburn blush. Just add a little liquid blush everywhere the sun would naturally color the face, like the middle of the nose and the top of the apples of your cheeks, and blend. You can even use liquid blush to contour your face or brighten your under-eye area.


With so many looks to experiment with, it is up to you to go as dramatic or understated as you want. We have compiled a list of the 12 top liquid blushes to help you find *the one* with the perfect rosy glow.
